A traditional riad, just behind the medina walls. We parked in last gap in the alley behind: the hotel website said it was guarded, but no-one was there when we drove away. The one girl there was efficient, fetching us from a nearby street (I cannot see how it would be possible to find the hotel from a map) and... More

Our 1 night stay at the riad in Rabat, was excellent. We were there for the Mawazine music festival, and we arrived into Rabat from Essaouira late at night. The gentleman welcomed us into the riad despite the time and was very kind. The room was spacious, relatively clean (though a little dusty and my allergies went crazy) and the... More

It was our last night and we wanted to be near the airport. This worked. It took is a while to find it but it is a very nice riad. It was clean and the service was above expectations. The owner left our breakfast out the night before as we had a very early flight. A bit noisy but overall... More

Riad is just amazing! Location is perfect, there is no point to stay in Rabat as Sale is just next door :) (getting to Rabat takes 10 min by tram or taxi) rooftop terrace is beautiful and has nice sea view. Food is great and staff are helpful and friendly! Highly recommended!

We spent a while deciding where to stay in Rabat/Sale before booking this riad, partly based on TripAdvisor reviews. The place looked nice but, within five minutes of getting into our room, we were asked to leave & told the riad was full. It was our first night in Morocco & we were left wandering the streets searching for a... More

This riad is the best that I know of. First: the very helpful and welcoming staff and owner and then the lovely terrace on the roof with the view over Salé, Rabat, Bou Regreg and the ocean. The rooms are very large and nicely (with a lot of taste) decorated. The beds are really comfortable. The breakfast is also the... More
